New Stuff



the binary codeI’ve been living with The Binary Code’s new EP Priest ever since they sent it to me many weeks ago, but from the get-go my favorite track has been “Encircled,” a progressive masterpiece that’s currently streaming over at Revolver Magazine. To me it encompasses all that I love about The Binary Code — complex, techy passages that don’t sacrifice the overall song in the name of showing off, off-kilter time signatures, sections of straight-forward head-banging groove, a little dose of shred, and an epic instrumental closing passage that calls to mind the “Part II” section of “Suspension of Disbelief” from their debut LP of the same name. In short, it’s fucking awesome.

The Priest EP came out yesterday and is available for instant digital download at The Binary Code’s webstore for only $3!! That’s the price of half a beer at any bar in NYC — cheap! They’ve also got some nifty t-shirt + download combos for only $15, although the 50 limited edition hand-made CDs the band put together have all long since sold out.

Listen to “Encircled” via Revolver here, and also check out our stream of the Priest title-track here and this jaw-dropping video of guitarist Jesse Zuretti and drummer Umar Fahim playing along to “Priest” on Metal Injection. The Binary Code dudes tell us they’ll be touring the East Coast in September; stay tuned for dates.
